Text i Isiu Nuel Xiv 14, and Samuel said what incur qty then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears and the lowing of the oxen which i hear the am lekites thought they had conquered Hod and that he would not carry into execution his threats against them. They Bud murdered the israelite in Battle and out of Battle and left no outrage untried. For -100 years this had been going on and they say cd either dare not punish us or he has forgotten to do let us see. Samuel Grid s Prophet tells Saul to go Down and slay All the amal kites not leaving one of Thorn alive also to destroy All Tho beasts in their , sheep Camel and ass. Hark i hear Tho tread of 210,000 men with monstrous haul at their Bead ablaze with Armor Bis shield dangling at Iii Side holding in Bis hand a Spear it the waving of which the great Host marched or halted. I see smoke Curling against the sky. Now there is a thick Cloud of it and now i see Tho whole City rising in a Chariot of smoke behind steeds of lire. It is Saul that set the City ablaze. The Amah kites and israelite meet the trumpets of Battle blow peal on peal and there is a death hush. Then there is a signal waved swords Cut and Hack javelins ring on Shields arms fall from trunks and beads Roll into Tho dust. Gush after Gash the frenzied yell the gurgling of throttled throats the cry of Puiu the laugh of revenge Tho curse hissed Between clinched army s death groan. Stacks of dead on All sides with eyes a shut and Mouths yet grinning vengeance. Huzzah for the israelite two Hundred and ten thousand men wave their plumes and clap their Shields for the lord god hath Given them the Vic tory. Gala and Loshon. Yet that victorious army of. Israel is conquered by sheep and oxen. God through the Prophet Samuel told Saul to slay All Tho am lekites and to slay All Tho beasts in their Possession but Saul thinking that be knows More than god saves agag the Amulet Irish King and five drove of sheep and a Herd of oxen that he cannot Bear to kill. Saul drives Tho sheep and oxen Down toward Home. has no idea that Samuel the Prophet will find out that he has saved these sheep and oxen for himself. Sam Uel comes and asks Saul the news from the Battle. Saul puts on a solemn face for there is to Cue who can look More solemn than your genuine hypocrite and he says i have fulfil led the com Mand of Trio lord. " Samuel listens and he bears Tho drove of sheep a Little Way off. Saul Haduo idea that the Prophet s ear would Busu acute. Samuel says to Saul if you Bavo done As god told you All Tho am lekites and All the beasts in their Possession what Menneth the bleating of the sheep in mine ears and the lowing of the oxen that i hear a one would have thought that blushes would have consumed the chock of Saul. Jno no he says Tho himself of course but the saved the sheep and oxen for sacrifice and then they thought it would be too bad anyhow to kill agag the amal Evitish King. Samuel takes the sword and he slashes agag to pieces and then he takes the skirt of Bis coat in True Oriental Stylo and rends it in Twain As much As to say you Saul just like that shall be torn away from your Empire Aud torn away from your throne " in other words let All the nations of the Earth hear the Story that Saul by disobeying god won a flock of shop but lost a kingdom. I learn from this subject that god will expose hypocrisy. Here Saul pre tends he has fulfilled the divine commis Sion by slaying All the beasts belonging to the am lekites and yet at the very moment he is telling the Story and prac timing the delusion the secret comes out and the sheep bleat and the oxen Bellow. A hypocrite is one who pit ends to be what he is not or to do what he does not. Saul was Only a Type of a class. The modern hypocrite looks awfully solemn whines when lie prays Aud Dur ing his Public Devotion shows a great Deal of the Whites of Bis eyes. never laughs or if he docs laugh he seems sorry for it afterwards As though he bad committed some indiscretion. The first time he gets a Chance to prays 20 minutes in Public and when be exhorts to seems to imply that All the race Are sinners with one exception Bis modesty forbidding the stating who that one is. There Are n great Many churches that have two or three ecclesiastical Uriah Heeps. Tho hypocrite. When the Fox begins to Pray Lookout for your chickens. The More genuine religion a Man has the More Comfort Able he will be but you May know a religious impostor by the fact that he prides himself on being uncomfortable. A Man of that kind is of immense dam age to the Church of Christ. A ship May outside a Hundred storms and yet a handful of Worms in the planks May sink it to the Bottom. The Church of god is not so much in danger of the cyclones of trouble and persecution that come upon in As of the a Crmim of hypocrisy that infest it. Wolves Are of no danger to the fold of god unless they look like sheep. Arnold was of More damage to Tho army than com Walin Aud Bis hosts. Of we cannot deceive god with a Church certificate he sees behind the curtain As Well As before tiie curtain. sees everything inside out. A Man May through policy hide his real character but god will after awhile tear open the Whitt a sep ulcer and expose the putrefaction. Sunday faces cannot save him. Long prayers cannot save him. Psalm singing and churchgoing cannot save him. God will expose him just As thoroughly As though he branded upon his forehead the word he May think he has Leon successful in the deception but at the most unfortunate moment the sheep will bleat and the oses will Cullow. Odo of the cruel Bishops of Olden time was going to excommunicate Ono of the martyrs and he began in Tho usual the name of god Stop Guys Tho Martyr. Don Tsay in the name of god " yet How Many mirages Are practice under the Gerh of religion and Sanctity. When Jin synods and conferences ministers of the gospel arc about to say something no brotherly Iid unkind about a Mem ber they almost always begin by being tremendously pious the venom of their assault corresponding to the heavenly flavor of the prelude. Standing there you would think they were ready to go right up into glory and that nothing kept him Down but Tho weight of their boots and overcoat when suddenly Tho sheep bleat and the oxen Bellow. Simplicity. Of my dear friends let us cultivate simplicity of Christian character Jesus Christ said " unless you become As this Little child you cannot enter the King Dom of we May play hypocrite successfully now but the lord god will after awhile expose our True character. You must know the incident mentioned in the history of Ott acas who was asked to Kneel in the presence of Randolphus i and when before him he refused to do it but after awhile he agreed to come in private when there was nobody in the King s tent and thu he would Kneel Down before him and worship but the servants of the King had arranged it so that by drawing a Cord the tent would suddenly drop. Ott acas after awhile came in and supposing he was in entire privacy Knelt before run Dolphus. The servants pulled the Cord the tent dropped and two armies sur rounding looked Down on Ott acas Kneel ing before Randolphus. Of we Are really kneeling to the world while we profess to he lowly subjects of Jesus Christ the tent has already dropped and All the hosts of heaven arc gazing upon our hypocrisy. God s universe is a very Public place and you cannot hide hypocrisy in it. Going out into a world of delusion and Sham pretend to be no More than you really Are. If you have the Grace of god profess it profess no More than you have. But i want the world to know that where there is one hypocrite in Tho Church there Are 500 outside of it for the reason that the Field is larger. There Are men in All circles who will Bow before you and who Are obsequious in your presence and talk flatter singly but who All the while in your conversation Are digging for bait and Angling for imperfections. In your pres ence they imply that they arc every thing Friendly but after awhile you find they have the fierceness of a Catamount the shyness of a Snake and the spite of a Devil. Ood will expose such. The Gnu they Load will burst in their own hands the lies they Tell will break their own Teeth Aud at the very moment they think they have been successful in deceiving you and deceiving the world the sheep will bleat and the oxen will Bel Low. i learn further from this subject How natural it is to try to put off our sins on other people. Saul was charged with disobeying god. The Man says it was not he he did not save the sheep the army did to throw it off on the shoulders of other people. Human nature is to e same in All Ages. Adam confronted with his sin said the woman tempted me and i did and the woman charged it upon Tho Serpent Aud if the Serpent could Havo spoken it would have charged it upon the Devil. I suppose that the Reul Stato of the Case was that eve was eating the Apple and that Adam saw it und begged and coaxed until he got a piece of it. I suppose that Adam was just As much to blame As eve was. You Cau not throw off the responsibility of any sin upon the shoulders of other people. Here is a Young Man who says i know i am doing wrong but i have not had any Chance. I had a father who despised god and a Mother who was a disciple of godless fashion. I am not to blame for my sins it is my bringing a no that Young Man has been out in Tho world Long enough to see what is right and to see what is wrong and in the great Day of eternity he cannot throw his sins upon his father or Mother but will have to stand for himself Aud answer before god. You have had a conscience you have had a Bible and the influence of Tho holy spirit. Stand for yourself or fall for yourself. Here is a business Man. says i know i Don t do exactly right in Trade but All the dry goods men do it and All the hardware men do this and i am not Yon cannot throw off your sin upon the shoulders of other merchants. God will hold you responsible for what you do and them responsible for what they do. I want to quote one passage of scripture for you i think it is in thou be Wise thou Salt be Wise for thyself but if thou so Crest thou alone Salt Bear All o 1 none. I learn Murthi r from this subject what god meant by extermination. Saul was told to slay All the am lekites and the beasts in their Possession. saves aging the Amale Kite King Aud some of the sheep and Cleu. God chastises him for it. God likes nothing done by halves. God will not stay in the soul that is half his and half the Devil s. There May be More sins in Bur soul than there were am lekites. We must kill the i. Woe unto us if we spare agag. Here is a Christian. To says i will drive out All the am lekites of s u from my heart. Here is goes that amal elite. Here is goes that Amale Kite and what Slaughter he makes among his sins striking right and left what is that out yonder lift ing up his head it is is world Siuess. It is an old sin he cannot Bear to strike Down. It is a Darling transgression he cannot afford to sacrifice. Of my Brethren i Appeal for Cutie Conse cration. Some of the presbyterians Call it the higher the methodists i believe Call it perfection. " i do not care what you Call it without holi Ness no Man shall see the i know men who arc living with their Sony in perpetual communion with Christ and Day by Day Are walking within sight of heaven. How do i know they Tell me so. I believe them. They would not lie about it. Why cannot we All have this consecration Why slay some of the sins in our soul and leave others to bleat and Bellow for our exposure and condemnation Christ will not stay in the same House with Weag. Iou give up agag or give up Christ. Jesus says All of that heart or none. " Saul slew the poorest of Tho sheep Aud the meanest of the oxen and kept some of the finest and the fattest and there Are christians who have slain the most unpopular of their transgressions und saved those which Are most respectable. It will not do. Eternal War against All the mercy for agag i learn further from this subject that it is vain to try to defraud god. Here Saul thought he had cheated god out of those sheep and oxen but he lost his Crown he lost his Empire. You can not cheat god out of a single cent. Here is a Man who has made in 10,000 in fraud. Before he Dies every Dollar of it will to gone or it will give him Vio Lent unrest. Here is a Christian who has been largely prospered. has not Given to god the proportion that is due in charities and Benevolence. God i comes to Tho reckoning and he takes it All away from you. How often it has been that Christian men have had a Large estate Aud it is gone. The lord god came into the counting room and said i have allowed you to have All this property for 10, 1 or 20 years and you have not done Justice to my poor children. When the beggar called upon you you hounded him off your Steps when my suffering children appealed to you for help you had no mercy. I Only asked for so much or so much but you did not give it to me and now i will take it All Tho Safe course. God uses of us one seventh of our time in the Way of Sabbath. Do you suppose to can get an hour of that time Success fully away from its True object no no. Goil has demanded one seventh of your time. If you take one hour of that time that is to be devoted to god s service Aud instead of keeping his Sabbath use it for Tho purpose of writing up your accounts or making worldly gains god will get that hour from you in some unexpected Way. God says to Jonah you go to he says no i won t. I la go to he starts for Tarshish. The sea raves the winds blow and Tho ship rocks. Come to whales and take this passenger for tar shish no Man Ever gets to Tarshish whom god tells to go to Nineveh. The sea would not carry him it is god s sea. The winds would not waft him they Are god s winds. Let a Man at tempt to do that which god forbids him to do or to go into a place where god tells him not to go the natural world As Well As god is against him. The lightnings Are ready to strike him the fires to Burn him to smite him the Waters to drown him and the Earth to Swallow him. Those whose princely Robes Are Woven out of Heartstrings those Whoso line houses Are built out of skulls those whose springing fountains Are the tears of oppressed nations have they successfully cheated god the last Day will demonstrate. It will be found out on that Day that god vindicated not Only his goodness and his mercy but Iii Power to take Caro of his own rights and the rights of his Church and the rights of his oppressed children. Come be martyred dead awake and come up from the dungeons where folded darkness hearted you and the chains like cankers peeled Loose the skin and wore off the flesh Aud rattled on the marrow less Bones. Come be martyred dead from the stakes where you were burned where the Arm uplifted for mercy fell into the ashes and the cry of pain was drowned in the snap Ping of the flame and the howling of the mob from valleys of Piedmont and Smithfield Market and London Tower and the Highlands of Scotland. Gather in great procession Aud together clap your Bony hands Aud together stamp your moldy feet and let the chains that bound you to dungeons All Clank at onco Aud gather All the flames that burned you in one uplifted Arm of fire and plead for a judgment. Gather All the tears pc Ever wept into a Lake and gather All the sighs be Ever breathed into a tempest until the heaven piercing Chain Clank and the tempest sigh Aud the Thunder groan announce to Earth and hell and heaven a judgment. Of on that Day god will vindicate his own cause and vindicate the cause of the troubled and Tho oppressed it will be seen in that Day that though we May have robbed our Fellows we never have successfully robbed god. My Christian friends As you go out into the world exhibit an open hearted Christian frankness. Do not be hypo critical in Auy thing. You Are never Safe if you Are. At the most Inopportune moment the sheep will bleat and the oxen Bellow. Drive out the last Amale a course of Ayer s pills the system is set in Good working order and a Man begins to feel that life is Worth living. who has become the gradual prey of constipation does not realize the friction under which he labors until the Burden is lifted from him. Then his mountains sink into mole Hills his Moros eness gives place to jollity he is a Happy Man again. If life does not seem Worth living to you you May take a very different View of it after taking Kite or sin tron your soul. It Lac to mercy 0 1 agag. Down with your sins Down with your Pride Down with Youit worldliness. I know you cannot achiever tin s work by your own Arm but Al might Grace is which saved Joseph in the pit that which delivered in the Den that which shielded shadrach in the lire that which cheered Paul in the Shipwreck. Iii Ullh mod greats. The absolutely essential examinations for a degree at Oxford Are Rospond Sions moderation and final schools colloquially termed Smalls mods and greats. The first of these is the Only examination that is the same for All for the Man who will have difficulty in scraping a pass degree and for the future Winner of the Hertford or Ireland the Blue ribbons of Oxford scholarship. Smalls or an accepted substitute for it must be passed by every one alike and is merely intended to decide a Man s fitness or unfitness for a University Ca reer of any kind. Bur immediately after Smalls Nan s paths begin to diverge. In moderation the Ordinary undergrad uate takes a pass examination but Tho Able Man Aims at honors either in greek or latin literature or in Mathe Matics. The former examination called Honor classical moderation affords a better test of scholarship and is a Moro valuable qualification for men who adopt teaching As a profession than any other at Oxford. In final schools the pass Man takes up a limited number of subjects and a limited Quantity of each. The Honor Man has a Choice of seven schools litters human orcs mathematics and physics jurisprudence modern history sacred theology natural science and semitic languages and literature. The first of these colloquially called classical greats is the distinctively characteristic Oxford examination and is selected by nearly All the men of marked ability. In earlier Days there were Only two final Honor classical and the Tho few men who were awarded first class Hon ors in both examinations Wero called double of this select number were the right Hon. W. E. Gladstone and the late lord idec Sleigh better known As sir Stafford Northcote. Bachelor of arts. High living in the Transvaal. Many persons go to the Transvaal in the belief that it is an Al Dorado whose riches May be harvested by the Mere act of stooping to lift Gold from the surface of the ground. Many have returned thoroughly disillusioned. The Cost of living at Johannesburg is excessive. Hotels charge � i a Day Aud no rebate for length of stay. Board at private houses English and Gorman is �75 a month for one occupant of a room. , rent for from $60 to �300 a month and 40 per cent addition Al is charged for those that Are furnished. Native negro domestics receive from �20 to 25 a Mouth. White serv ants receive from �4 to �0 a Day. Beef or Mutton Tough and often tainted cos s 15 cents a Pound pork 25 cents veal $1.60 a Pound. The Price of Poul try is almost prohibitive. Game during the season is moderately cheap. Vege tables Are at times unobtainable except those in cans imported from the United states. Drinks at a bar Cost 25 cents each. Ordinary aerated water is sold for go cents a bottle. The Price of Champagne is not Given because none but owners of Kaffir mines can afford to Purchase it. Washing costs $1 a dozen whether it to a colbird a handkerchief or a pair of stockings. After four Wash Ings the articles Are useless. The min eral dust that is constantly driving through the air destroys heavy clothing in a few weeks and Linen in a few Days. It is said that three a clings equal a fire. In Johannesburg this applies to a single moving for it costs �250 to Sork Sun. Oil tin. The total absence Cfall even incidental reference among classic authors to Oil painting May be considered conclusive evidence that the ancients Wero unacquainted with the Art. It is known however from the frequent allusions to them that during Throe centuries antecedent to the technical perfection Dis played in the works of the Brothers Eyck there were what we May consider tentative efforts in Oil painting. And so distinct is the evidence of the practice of Oil painting Long before the beginning of the fifteenth the Eyck Tho account of their invention or discovery by Vassari the italian biographer of artist seven understood restricted by has been denied altogether. It appears however that Oil painting was at first Only employed for colouring standards banucr3 and Pennon with heraldic devices and for the subordinate complementary Aud decorative parts of , for instance As draperies and accessories. And no example of Fig ures or pictures in the modern sense of the term entirely executed in Oil be fore the time of Tho Eyck can be proved to exist nor is there a distinct record of such works having been executed. As might therefore Havo been expected research has shown that the Eyck Are entitled to our gratitude not indeed for having created the Art but for removing disqualifications which unfitted it to compote with much less supersede Tho Ordinary cd j vehicle of the Nio Hoval painters a wartime Jingle. There came into Vogue about that time a nonsense verse so called bearing upon my Humble self and Viva Cious enough to be widely quoted in the newspapers. It was composed i believe by mrs.

As a matter of fact it came no nearer the truth than Tho famous definition of a crab by Cuvier s Pupil since i had never been a curate had already left the pulpit for literature before the War and was so far from stipulating for a coloured regiment that i bad just been commissioned in a White one.
